Great news – ParkZone has released a new Warbird! Everyone has suspected there was going to be a new Warbird but nobody knew which model. This one is a WWII US Navy airplane—the F4F Wildcat. I’m pretty sure this announcement is going to make a lot of people happy. This Navy Wildcat was used early in the war and pilots loved it. Scale touches include a realistic paint scheme, simulated engine cylinders and cowl flaps, molded wheels tucked into the fuselage and more. It looks like a very good but typical ParkZone-style airplane. We are all going to have fun with this one.
Matt Andren, ParkZone’s primary product developer for the F4F, is with us today to let us know about the features of this new model. Take a look at our video and learn about everything this Wildcat offers RC pilots everywhere.
